VIRGO 23 AUG – 22 SEP There is per­haps a sense of the ar­ti­fi­cial, the repet­i­tive, the sense­less. You can­not seem to get be­neath the sur­face. Usu­ally when some­one as sen­si­tive as you are un­der­stands the en­ergy of the day, you will rec­og­nize the changes that are be­gin­ning to take place. Change at this time is good. If you are feel­ing well then you are in­tu­itively pick­ing up on the changes that are about to hap­pen. As you con­tinue work­ing, step back to look around you, as though you were an ob­server. Soon, you will see a pat­tern and you will fit right into what­ever changes are hap­pen­ing around your pro­fes­sion. Read the stock market re­port and keep up with any news­wor­thy in­for­ma­tion re­gard­ing your trade. It should not be nec­es­sary to work over­time; a pos­i­tive at­ti­tude is good.

LI­BRA 23 SEP – 22 OCT Mak­ing sure the money in your pocket matches the needs that you have this day is very im­por­tant. You may need to stop and get a lit­tle cash be­fore work this morn­ing. You may want to pay for all or part of some­one’s lunch later to­day as well as your own– a cel­e­bra­tion of sorts is in or­der. Your work­day goes with­out com­plaints and you have the in­cen­tive it takes to be clas­si­fied at the top of your field. Your am­bi­tions go hand in hand with your com­mu­ni­ca­tion skills to­day and if any­one needs as­sis­tance you are the first one at his or her side. If you are in sales, your day will ex­ceed your ex­pec­ta­tions. Peo­ple you rely on at an emo­tional level tend to be sup­port­ive just when you need them to be. Flow­ers are a nice gift for tonight.

SCOR­PIO 23 OCT – 21 NOV This could be a time for a real break­through in the idea depart­ment. You are in top form when it comes to cre­ativ­ity. You get along well with older peo­ple, es­pe­cially those in au­thor­ity. Po­lit­i­cal is­sues in­ter­est you and may be a call­ing in your near fu­ture. Some cre­ative idea that you have had run­ning around in your head lately needs to be writ­ten down. This idea can be turned into a prod­uct that will make an ac­tiv­ity eas­ier for se­niors to be more in­de­pen­dent. If you can work on this in­ven­tion over the week­end you may find a fi­nan­cial backer to help you. It is easy for you to con­vey your­self to oth­ers and you al­ways man­age to make a good ap­pear­ance. Co-work­ers may talk you into be­ing the go-be­tween to­day. You have an easy man­ner and are very con­vinc­ing.

SAGIT­TAR­IUS 22 NOV – 21 DEC This is a great time to be with oth­ers and to work to­gether. Your drive for in­de­pen­dence is ob­vi­ous and it is clear that the com­mon and the tra­di­tional are not for you. You pur­sue al­ter­nate or non­con­formist so­lu­tions to life with great fo­cus. You may find your­self en­joy­ing some fun flir­ta­tion later to­day–care­ful. Main­tain your good health by learn­ing all you can about your own body–al­ler­gies, weak­nesses and strengths. Cel­e­brate life by do­ing some­thing healthy and fun. Lady luck smiles on you where fi­nances are con­cerned. This is a good time to be­gin the habit of bal­ance where your fi­nances come into play. Some­times you can be very fru­gal, liv­ing on lit­tle and at other times you can blow it all in a mo­ment. Bal­ance is the key here.

CAPRI­CORN 22 DEC – 19 JAN There is a ten­dency to­wards iso­la­tion to­day– your con­cen­tra­tion is so in­tense. You tend to block out ev­ery­thing that is hap­pen­ing around you when you work or study. The only prob­lem here is that when you look up, al­most ev­ery­one has gone away. Re­mem­ber, all work and no play is re­ally putting your men­tal and phys­i­cal body in a bind. Cre­ate a bal­ance . . . New and fresh ideas will emerge when you do re­turn to your work or stud­ies. A friend vis­it­ing this af­ter­noon may bring up old mem­o­ries and fun con­ver­sa­tions. Some past event may be on your mind this evening and you may find your­self rem­i­nisc­ing over some of these mem­o­ries and shar­ing some of the sto­ries with your loved ones. You may en­joy find­ing new ways to dis­play some old pic­tures.

AQUAR­IUS 20 JAN – 18 FEB You man­age to end up in the lime­light to­day with the sup­port of those around you. You get a lot of mileage out your ap­pear­ance and the way you com­mu­ni­cate to oth­ers. You could make your liv­ing from the public. The work you do and the way you take care of health and other obli­ga­tions are im­por­tant keys to your best po­ten­tials. There is a need for fo­cus and care­ful anal­y­sis in many areas of your life–if you do not be­come too scat­tered, you should do very well. This is a time dur­ing which new ideas and ap­proaches in man­age­ment are pos­si­ble. Per­haps a new­found in­de­pen­dence and orig­i­nal­ity man­i­fests it­self in your work­ing en­vi­ron­ment. You might find that per­fect apart­ment this af­ter­noon. This is a good day–much is ac­com­plished..

PISCES 19 FEB – 20 MAR To­day is a time of much en­thu­si­asm, per­fect for start­ing some­thing out or tak­ing care of busi­ness. You pour your­self into your tasks with great de­ter­mi­na­tion. You are a de­pend­able per­son and en­joy tak­ing on many re­spon­si­bil­i­ties. Any re­search or work that re­quires dig­ging, search­ing, in­ves­ti­gat­ing and get­ting be­neath the sur­face can be to your lik­ing. There is sat­is­fac­tion in find­ing the an­swer to a dif­fi­cult puz­zle. The word here is ac­com­plish­ment. If there is a job, you can do it. Men­tal dis­ci­pline and pa­tience are your tal­ents. You will stay men­tally young a very long time be­cause of your puz­zle-solv­ing abil­i­ties; keep it up and you keep your mind ac­tive. You or­ga­nize or help to run a par­ents’ net­work group in your neigh­bor­hood–keep­ing in­formed.

ARIES 21 MAR – 19 APR You might feel that some av­enues of sup­port are blocked. This is one of those days you are glad to have eight work­ing hours and no more. It is good to count your bless­ings . . . Oth­ers would fes­ter over a sin­gle sit­u­a­tion; good for you. Yes, you could be a men­tor for oth­ers and many times you are a men­tor for oth­ers with­out even re­al­iz­ing it. Try to re­move any emo­tions be­fore at­tempt­ing to con­vince higher-ups of a new or dif­fer­ent way to tend to busi­ness; af­ter all, in time they may de­cide they like your idea and then you will be in­un­dated with peo­ple ask­ing for your at­ten­tion. . . Could be good . . . Could be in­ter­est­ing. Do­ing fa­vors for peo­ple may not al­ways get you in­stant grat­i­fi­ca­tion–do not look for any. Din­ner time should be light and col­or­ful; music.

TAU­RUS 20 APR – 20 MAY You are buoyed with con­fi­dence to suc­ceed at any project you at­tempt. This is a good time for some sort of un­der­tak­ing, as your orig­i­nal­ity is un­usu­ally height­ened. You have tremen­dous men­tal en­thu­si­asm. If you chan­nel this ea­ger­ness well, you can be very in­flu­en­tial. This is a time when re­la­tions in busi­ness are on a solid ground. Your words and ideas can trans­port and en­chant lis­ten­ers, car­ry­ing them be­yond the world as they know it into the world as they wish it could be. Your imag­i­na­tion and sense of what con­nects all of life are felt in your speech and in the way you com­mu­ni­cate. Take the time to give a help­ing hand or a lis­ten­ing ear to the young peo­ple in your fam­ily. An in­ter­est­ing story, such as a fa­ble, can help a young per­son learn good char­ac­ter.

GEM­INI 21 MAY – 21 JUN This is a pow­er­ful time of change, dur­ing which you may have great in­sight into your ca­reer. You could change jobs or sud­denly find a way to trans­form and im­prove your cur­rent job. A cer­tain amount of men­tal ten­sion can be ex­pected, so bear with it. You will find that your mind and thoughts will be very in­tense. There could be a lot of pres­sure to make de­ci­sions that you might re­gret later. You could come up with new so­lu­tions or in­ven­tions but it may be best to put a heavy-duty de­ci­sion on hold for a while–there is plenty of ner­vous fer­vor. Re­gard­less of the stresses to­day, you can demon­strate great un­der­stand­ing and sen­si­tiv­ity about the needs of oth­ers and will un­doubt­edly share some close mo­ments with your loved ones.

CAN­CER 22 JUN – 22 JUL Re­solv­ing con­flict­ing opin­ions and de­cid­ing be­tween op­pos­ing views is a spe­cial fo­cus for you now. Per­haps you have been to some sort of prob­lem-solv­ing sem­i­nar. What­ever the case, you look for ways to find so­lu­tions to busi­ness sit­u­a­tions. Dis­tin­guish­ing be­tween facts and feel­ings and giv­ing each its due be­come the keys to the an­swers you seek, whether you are solv­ing emo­tional or pro­mo­tional sit­u­a­tions. Goals and se­cu­rity needs are a fo­cus as well and there are plenty of chal­lenges to con­sider. This af­ter­noon may be the time to write up a most im­por­tant re­port– you are ready. You are able to com­mu­ni­cate with ut­most orig­i­nal­ity. Your love of job and prac­ti­cal skills makes you a fine manager and busi­nessper­son. Tonight is for friends.

LEO 23 JUL – 22 AUG The hum of busy minds is what you en­joy, never a step back­ward, al­ways mov­ing for­ward or mak­ing small ad­just­ments. Your drive to achieve, learn and aspire is strong. You are able to use good com­mon sense–you can feel the trends and make the right moves. This is a time to get ahead by tak­ing ac­tion. Act­ing on im­pulse, how­ever, can lead you in a sense­less di­rec­tion, so watch out for the urge to be hasty; it can lead you to do things you might have cause to re­gret. Money mat­ters re­quire at­ten­tion this af­ter­noon. Things need fix­ing and un­wise pur­chases can put you in a bind; be sure you know what you are get­ting into. You have no­ticed that events make it easy for you to be orig­i­nal, have break­throughs and find new so­lu­tions to old prob­lems.
